One of Mo Willems’ best loved characters, Pigeon, is back… And he’s not happy!
When well-mannered Duckling asks nicely for a cookie and gets it, Pigeon has one his of fabulous, over-the-top tantrums. Outraged, he yells – “I ask for things ALL THE TIME! I ask to drive the bus! I ask for hot dog parties!…But do I get what I ask for? Nooooooooooooooooo!”
Given that Willems’ illustrations are simple, it’s remarkable that the characters are so expressive – Pigeon’s facial expressions and his tantrum are hilarious and will be enjoyed by kids as young as two years old.
